    Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is thinking about supporting the Libertarian presidential ticket this year. Well, at least, that’s what the Libertarian ticket says. In a interview Thursday afternoon with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, former Govs. Gary Johnson and Bill Weld, of New Mexico and Massachusetts, respectively, said they have had spoken with Romney and he was “considering the possibility” of endorsing the two of them.

    Watching Sen. Bernie Sanders hoarsely shouting his praises of Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention — and knowing that the hacked emails of the corrupt Democratic National Committee (DNC) reveal its machinations to undermine Bernie’s campaign — did you wonder as I did why Bernie would be so servile? The Yiddish words schmuck and schlemiel come to mind. I thought that Hillary probably bought Bernie off with promises of some plum assignment in her administration. But I should know better because the Clintons are nasty pieces of work who wouldn’t use the carrot when the stick is so much...

    Senator Bernie Sanders once again faced boos on Tuesday as his restive supporters continued to raise protests despite his efforts to persuade them that voting for Hillary Clinton is the best way to defeat Donald J. Trump. After making the rounds at several breakfasts, the Vermont senator was met with a loud chorus of boos from members of the California delegation. The booing started immediately, with many people in the audience giving Mr. Sanders a thumbs-down sign. But Mr. Sanders was quick to wave the crowd to be quiet and to chide them for their response. “It’s easy, it is...

"Pennsylvania has a good shot of going Republican in November and these billboards will certainly help by getting people registered and to the polls," said Ben King, the outreach director for Amish PAC. The goal of the billboards is to educate Amish and Mennonite voters about Trump.

National unions have overwhelmingly endorsed Clinton with many warning Trump would be disastrous for worker rights. The AFL-CIO, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), the National Education Association, AFSCME, among others within the labor movement voiced their support for her at the the Democratic National Convention. “We need a president that wants to raise wages instead of one that thinks wages are too high and doesn’t even think there should be a federal minimum wage,” SEIU International...

Malik, who is in his 50s, told Reuters by phone from Obama's ancestral home of Kogelo in western Kenya that he supports Trump's policies, especially his focus on security. "He appeals to me and also I think that he is down to earth and he speaks from the heart and he is not trying to be politically correct. He's just straight-forward," he said....

    And a weird sop to the racial-grievance industry CLEVELAND—Ted Cruz did the Republican Party no favors last night when he pointedly refused to endorse GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, breaking a promise he and other rival candidates made at the outset of the primary campaign last year. Cruz also made what appeared to be some kind of overture to race baiters by mentioning aspiring cop-killer Alton Sterling who was recently shot dead by Baton Rouge police during an altercation. It seemed very odd, but maybe in retrospect it shouldn’t. After all, Cruz went along with leftists and a few other...

Cruz never wanted to endorse Trump and is still furious about the personal attacks the GOP presidential nominee made on his family during the primary campaign, sources familiar with the speech preparations told The Hill. But top aides had concluded he needed to formally endorse Trump at the Republican National Convention. For Cruz, it was always personal.

The liberal media has done much to demonize Trump with them, by pointing out a few rogue Twitter trolls, who may or may not be DNC/Crooked Hillary shills. Here's the truth: Donald J. Trump will prevent a Europe-like scenario of Muslim immigration to the US. That Europe-like scenario is the sheer amount of Jews fleeing the continent because Muslim anti-Semitism has increased with the Islam population, and leftist and formerly center-left parties have courted the Muslim vote with...

Cruz told reporters Thursday that the real estate mogul offered his former primary rival a speaking slot during the meeting and Cruz accepted. He added that he and Trump did not discuss an endorsement.

    Marine Le Pen, the leader of France’s far right National Front party, said in a magazine interview said that if she were American, she would vote for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. "If I was American I would vote for anyone but Hillary Clinton ... Between him and Hillary Clinton, it is clear that I would choose Donald Trump," Le Pen told the French magazine Valeurs Actuelles. "What appeals to Americans is that he is a man free from Wall Street, from markets and from financial lobbies and even from his own party," she said....

    New York Conservative Party Chairman Mike Long predicts that Donald Trump would make his state “very competitive” in the fall. “He’s running extremely well in Suffolk and Nassau Counties and upstate,” Long told me, citing “privilege polling” he had recently seen. “There’s a revolution against politics as usual taking place and, while winning New York is difficult for any Republican, Donald Trump is making it competitive. "In so doing, he can change the dynamics of the election this November.” Long underscored that support for Trump was “overwhelming” among the party’s 287-member state committee. With New York one of the five...

    No Trump campaign buttons or bumper stickers for me. I’m part of the new silent majority: those who don’t like Donald Trump but might vote for him anyway. For many of us, Trump has only one redeeming quality: He isn’t Hillary Clinton. He doesn’t want to turn the United States into a politically correct, free-milk-and-cookies, European-style social democracy where every kid (and adult, too) gets a trophy just for showing up. Members of this new silent majority, many of us front-wave baby boomers, value hard work and love the United States the way it was. We long for a bygone...

    From TMZ: Herschel Walker says he’s paying the price for supporting Donald Trump — telling TMZ Sports he’s been dropped from multiple speaking engagements for publicly backing the GOP candidate. Walker was one of Trump’s first big celebrity endorsers — praising his former “Celebrity Apprentice” boss as a brilliant man who will truly make America great again. But after he went public, Walker says he started getting axed from speaking gigs — most recently getting canceled from an event in California because organizers were afraid Walker would attract anti-Trump protesters. .. Despite the backlash, Walker says he will NOT stop...

    It’s hard to imagine a better endorsement of Donald Trump’s economic policies – whatever they may be, whenever he finds the time to explain them – than the recent endorsement of Hillary Clinton by former Goldman Sachs CEO and U.S. Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson. As the man in charge of the biggest explosion of corporate welfare in world history – the “TARP” bailouts, he defined himself as a sworn enemy of capitalism and a socialist when it comes to the capital markets. Socializing billions of dollars in investment bank, insurance company, and automobile industry losses with taxpayer dollars qualifies Paulson...

    Bernie Sanders said Friday he will vote for Hillary Clinton for president in November, the strongest expression of support yet from the Vermont senator for his rival, and his clearest admission that he will not be the Democratic presidential nominee. "Are you going to vote for Hillary Clinton in November," asked Nicole Wallace on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "Yes. Yes, I think the issue right here is I am going to do everything I can to defeat Donald Trump," Sanders said. "I think Trump in so many ways will be a disaster for this country if he were to be elected...

    An Evangelical Christian leader went against the grain of her religious subset’s strong pro-life stance this week and endorsed pro-abortion candidate Hillary Clinton for president. Deborah Fikes is the executive advisor to the World Evangelical Alliance, which works with churches in 129 countries to spread the Christian message. The Hill reports Fikes voiced her personal support for Clinton on Tuesday after a meeting between Christian leaders and likely Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. She called Clinton “trustworthy” and Trump “un-Christian” as she gave her personal endorsement to the pro-abortion candidate. “Hillary Clinton is the leader who people of faith are...
